Concept & Feasibility Studies

GPA provide concept and feasibility studies to assess project viability across a variety of industries.

GPA specialise in defining project scope in order to conduct objective analysis of project technical, operational and financial feasibility. GPA’s growing store of knowledge and experience allows for critical assessment of project requirements and strategic objectives. Resulting in clients empowered to make informed decisions with quantified benefits and highlighted risks in mind.

GPA’s experience is gained by regularly delivering services through a full project lifecycle, working on projects from initial concept studies, through to detailed design, construction management and finally hand over to operators. New learnings are applied to our processes, this continual improvement ensures our clients receive the latest efficiencies and process improvements.

Our engineering services include concept and feasibility studies which extend to cost estimation deliverables and industry analysis (used for market assessments by clients). We can also deliver stand-alone product-to-market assessments, to evaluate cost options for various development options.
